Russia does not take part in the discussion of the risks of a coup in Uzbekistan, said the press secretary of the Russian president Dmitry Peskov. His words are quoted by RIA Novosti.
The Kremlin spokesman added that this is a topic of communication between Minsk and Tashkent.
Earlier, the head of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, said that the CSTO member states should learn from the protests in Kazakhstan. According to the Belarusian leader, Uzbekistan needs to pay attention to the situation especially closely, since there is relevant operational information.
Lukashenko also called on the CSTO leaders to hold talks on Tajikistan, which needs support, including military equipment.
Earlier, Tajik President Emomali Rahmon announced terrorist cells in Central Asia. According to him, there are more than 6,000 militants at the borders.
